      Description

      The Resolved Questions page [1] only mentions Public Domain in connection with Doug Lea's concurrent library.
      Public Domain is not specifically listed under any category.

      A concrete example is the code at [0] which says:
      <quote>
      Written by Brian Goetz and Tim Peierls with assistance from members of
      JCP JSR-166 Expert Group and released to the public domain, as explained at
      http://creativecommons.org/licenses/publicdomain
      </quote>

      The CC document [2] linked above includes the words "or Public Domain Certification".

      I think it would be helpful if [1] were updated to clarify whether the inclusion of [2] "Creative Commons Copyright-Only Dedication" means that all works "released to the public domain" are covered, or only works that follow the example above and reference [2].
